Perma creates high fidelity web captures on demand for the specific goal of preserving citations. When a user creates a Perma record, captures the referenced content and generates a new link to a playback of the archived record. The record will always be available through the link and is displayed in an iFrame including time and date of capture as well as a path to the live page. Records are stored by the Harvard Law School Library and a consortium of partner institutions. differs from traditional web crawlers, capturing content that allows for a high fidelity replay of a given webpage so that users see and interact with a website the way they would have with the live site. It also provides a user interface for account holders to organize and manage their links. Institutional accounts allow for shared foldering.
